PRO-CHOICE AND LIBERAL LOGIC ARE BOTH OXYMORONS
April 10, 2013
Well, I am back from my brief Sabbatical. That all due in part to a conversation I had with a dear 'liberal' friend who came to me yesterday and confided a "deep secret" about her liberal friends ... "They don't think consistently!"
I was quick to reply: "They don't think at all! They emote. They feel. They react."
My friend, Renee, wasn't that quick to agree but she explained to me exactly what she meant and proceeded to give me a true-to-life illustration. in fact, it's a text-book illustration of just how liberalism, i.e.. Secular-Progressive Marxism, works.
Renee, who is pro-choice on abortion (although she thinks it should be done in the first trimester only, but that is her personal view), has a problem with her kind when it comes to school vouchers. You see, she wants to send her two children to a good school; one in which there is an emphasis on teaching/learning and not on baby sitting/emoting feelings.
Radio talk show host Michael Savage says Liberalism is a mental disorder. In fact, he wrote a whole book on this fact. He notes that they can say a two word sentence and each word is contradicts the other. Consistency is not in their vocabulary.
Liberals have turned manipulation of the English language into an art form for the purpose of advancing their destructive social agenda but every once in a while their self-serving distortions sneak up behind them and bite in the form of contradictions in logic, reason, and common sense.
For example, let's take my friends example of abortion and school choice. if a woman should have the right to choose to abort her unborn child, why should she not have the right to choose where she sends her living child to school? To anyone with an IQ of at least 5, it would seem that liberals are not really pro-choice after all. They support choice only when choice supports the liberal agenda.
On the issue of school choice, liberals are definitely not pro-choice. From what I have been able to determine, liberals oppose school choice for one or both of two reasons. First, they are opposed to parents receiving vouchers that help pay the tuition at private schools. Liberals willingly admit their opposition to vouchers although a voucher is nothing more than taxpaying parents receiving back some of the taxes they have already paid and must continue to pay even though their children no longer attend public schools.
Criticism of vouchers by liberals should come as no surprise. Liberals love taxes, and they will not give them up without a fight.
The second reason liberals oppose school choice is that it removes children with pliable young minds from daily leftwing indoctrination sessions. Public schools are leftwing incubators that produce a steady supply of brainwashed young people for self-serving politicians intent on building an ever-expanding base of entitled, dependent voters. This, the acquisition and retention of political power, is the real reason liberals oppose school choice, though they are loathe to admit it. This is why they continue to oppose school choice even when advocates are willing to forgo vouchers as in the case of homeschooling.
Students who are educated rather than indoctrinated are the liberals’ worst nightmare. Students who are taught to think for themselves will soon question the contradictions in logic that must be accepted if the liberal worldview is to prevail. Liberals know that a school voucher is a “Get-Out-of-Jail-Free” card for students whose parents want them to get a real education. Every student educated in a private school, Christian school, or homeschool is another candidate for dependency lost to the left.
As of this writing, 21 states provide parents school choice: Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. According to the Heritage Foundation, school choice generates the following beneficial results: Higher graduation rates
Better student performance -- More satisfied parents
In other words, liberals who oppose school choice oppose higher graduation rates, better student performance, and more parent satisfaction. What does that say about liberals?
There is a very positive outcome of my discussion with my friend: She 'thought" for a moment and concluded: If a woman doesn't want a dummy for a child at 18, why didn't she abort him in the first place?
Good CHOICE of words, Renee!
